Yes, it’s true, America Chavez is finally getting her on solo series in 2017. What we know about this series so far is that it’s being called America and the cover artist will be Jamie McKelvie. What I do find funny is that America Chavez creators Joe Casey and Nick Dragotta are launching a series called All-America Comix which will launch through Image Comics in 2017 and features a character named America Vasquez. Visually Chavez and Vasquez look very similar, so it’s going to be interesting to see what fans will purchase when the time comes. I’m really hoping they get a woman to write this upcoming series.
Other thoughts, I just feel as though Marvel could have announced this series earlier. Given the fan base Chavez has built up since Young Avengers, I’m unsure as to why they waited until now. Then again it was announced Batwoman would be getting her own solo series once more. So I’m guessing it’s competition? I don’t want to say it feels hollow but it does in some ways. Anyway, comment down below with your thoughts, I’m XBen3000 and I’m out!
